The Nordic Kings Family Tree / alternative version of Nordic history

The history of Scandinavia and north has been dominated by Vikings and Scandinavians last thousand years. In the east, Russia became a strong inheriting its strength from Bysant. There was Finland in between and never managed to develop infrastructure of state or Kingdom.

That has been the common knowledge according our existing history. Thus, is it the whole truth? Despite the fact that the winners are always writing the history there is some amount of archeological and written leads that gives a possibility to interpreter the history differently.

Before the Viking era 4th – 7th century AD Finland was relatively strong and independent i.e. in armory and jewelry making. Also Finland had strong trade links to Baltic and middle Europe not trough Scandinavia, not forgetting the Finno-Ugrian tribes, which were occupying the land far till the Ural mountains in the east (2000 km X 2000 km). The history hasn’t explained why the Vikings didn’t occupy Finland even thou they were influencing and terrorizing the whole Europe and were dominating the river routes in Russia - it has been claimed that the land was too difficult to access and travel and there were not big cities where the valuable goods could be found, which lowered the interest to occupy it. But is that the whole truth, maybe or maybe not. Lets think if there were organized state or chieftain system with accountable armed forces that prevented the possible occupation?

How Finland was and what was it before drowned under the Swedish crown? Then we have to dig into Sagas and old Germanic literature. According Widsith 6th century AD and Saxo Grammaticus 1190 Finland was not unorganized barbaric land, instead it was accounted as similar “Kingdom” as any other Nordic Kingdom.

By end of 10th century Orkneyinga- and Hversu Noregr bygdistí sagas are saying that Finland and Kvenland were some kind of base Kingdom for whole Nordic, from where the Royal Houses of Norway and Denmark were established. Those sagas also mention that from Finland were sent many Kings and Queens to rule, especially many Queens in Sweden came from Finland.

The family tree of Finnish Kings is presented with more details in a introduction of Orkneyinga saga (Fundinn Noregur) starting from the King Fornjotr (the giant), but the Scandinavian historians (including some Finnish) are constantly dismissing these as a mythical information, not historical (same time downgrading the sagas as a historical sources).

The Germanic literature contains mentions of Finnish from year 600; the oldest source is Widsith, which lists of Kings in an era of Tribal movement between 4th – 5th century. There is an entry: Caesare weold Graecum, ond Caelic Finnum, (the ceasar ruled Greeks and Caelic finns). Academic Kustaa Vilkkuna concluded that “Caelic” is a word of Kaleva with gothic –ic (-ik) ending. (Carelia, Karjala, Kaleva, Kalev. Kalik, Caelic).

A Danish researcher Gudmund Schütte argues that the Finnish Egther Fynnens mentioned in Saxo Grammaticus is the father of Beowulf (hero); Ecgtheow. And surprisingly this name is found from Finnish folklore, in Väinämöisen tuomio (Väinämöinen’s judgment): Syntyi poika Poimarissa (Paimio) Emo kutsui Ehtaroksi (=Egther Fynnensis?)… Iso kutsui Ismoriksi, Emo Ehtoopoiaksehen. – Ehtoo-Ehtaro, which was made a king of Paimio, could be the finn mentioned in Saxo Grammiticus, Egther Fynnensis and also as in the Beowulf-saga’s Ecgtheow that was Beowulf’s father. Ecgtheow was from waegmudingas family, compare to Finnish Osmo-Osmoinen Scandinavian version Osmund.

Could it be that Väinö-Väinämöinen’s Scandinavian spelling is Waegmund, which is spelled Wäimund, if it so, Ecgtheow from Beowulf was related to Väinämöinen family, and therefore, he was Väinöläinen. That surename has been mentioned in literature up till 1400 in Masku (Finland).

The best sources of Finnish Kings are Icelandic sagas (Orkneyinga-, Historia Neorwegiae-, Hversu Noregr bygditz-, Egil-, Ynglinga-, Kettil Haengrin- and Bardr) from 11th – 13th century. The sagas are telling Scandinavian and Germanic historical happenings including Finnish Kings. All the sources counted together Finnish and Kvenish Kings are mentioned thirty times.

According Orkneyinga- and Hversu Noregr bygdist sagas a part of Scandinavian God mythology is deriving from Finnish Kings. For example, The Finnish King Fornjotr’s sons Hler, Loge and Kare have ended up in the god mythology. Hler went to Denmark and conquered; Hlesey = Laesö, island and established a ruling seat / family. In sagas Hler turned into Aegir, the god of the sea. Loge established a ruling seat in northern Norway, which becomes Haalogaland. Loge is turned into the god of fire.

A Kvenish King Torro and his midwinter sacrifice feast become the Scandinavians name for January (swe: januari). His dother Gois or Goa became February (swe: februari).

Orkneyinga- and Hversu Noregr bygdist sagas tell that there is several kings from Finland or Kvenland that went to rule Sweden i.e. Östen Gylf, as in the similar way than the ruling houses were established in Norway and Denmark.

Moreover, sagas say that a Prins from Kvenland, Norr, concurred Norway and became its first King. After him Norway got its name. Harald the fairhair is descendant from Norr directly.

Gor, the son of King Torr established a dynasty of sea-kings in Denmark and his grandson Östen Gulf took the crown of Sweden. In Norway, sea admiral Rognvald’s (descended from Gor) son Gange Rolf concurred Normandy and the Rouen-jarls and Orkney-jarls are descended from and later the Vilhelm The Conquer established a dynasty in England 1066 AD.

Olaus Magnus’ Carta Marina (1500) defines the Finnish area as: Finlandia-Vel-Finningia Olim Regnum, the ancient Finnish Kingdom.

(Carta Marina)


From year 1985 the researchers from Oulu University had found settlements and graves from the areas where the Sagas place the old Kvenland, these findings are from Roman Iron age and The Great Immigration era, which gives credibility for the alternative history of The North.

Messenius said 1600 AD that Finnish kings were using practical laws and they had similar rune language / writing system than Scandinavians.

Finland-Kvenland Kingdom vanished in 400 hundreds years. From year 800 Finland was between two powers, Vikings and Russians. The Finnish kingdom still existed in some way 12th century. Al Idrisi wrote 1154 AD in his world atlas where Ruija was that Finnish Kings were having holdings there. This proves that Finland had a King still at that time and it was known as far as Sicily where Al Idrisi was living at that time.

Finland ended up under the Swedish rule 1249-50 (not in 1155 as been claimed), which was the end of the saga of Finnish Kings. the origin of Royal houses in Europe were avoided to be linked to Kvenland and Finland and for political reasons the systematic undermining and hiding of Finnish past did its job as we can see from history teaching in Nordic schools where the Finnish history starts from the era when Sweden came to the power and was ruling the country. Before that Finland was filled with a bunch of un-literal, barbaric hunters, we can learn from history books at schools.

But the story of Forjotr-family survived, thanks for sagas that were written before the Finnish kingdom disappeared. Sagas are not the only source of Forjotr blood line, the most famous, Viking era, poet, Skaldi: Tjodoly Hvini, he was singing in Harald the Fairhairs’ court, according the oldest Scandinavian text 800-900 AD Yngligatal, about a gigantic Loge, which was Fornjotr’s blood line. And why he wouldn’t sing about Fonjotr because he was Harald the Fairhair’s ancestor.

Snorri Sturluson 1220’s used Ynglingatal as a source for Ynglingasaga but he does not mention Fornjotr, only in a quotation from Tjodov Hvinil. - Finland had lost its glory by then and it was not”politically correct” to lead the origin of the royal houses to Finland. After all Snorri could not completely dimish Finnish past, he did not call Finnish and Kvenish leaders as kings, although he mentioned several chieftains from there. But many Swedish kings, according him, went to get wives from Finland. It is not likely that Kings from Sweden went to marry just peasant girls.

Fundinn Noregr -, Hversu Noregr bygdist - and Historia Norwegiae are older sagas than Snorri’s and they consist older information same as in Ynglingatal where the Finnish Kings are mentioned. Moreover, Widsith from 6th century, Saxo Grammaticus from 1190 and the Sicilian Moslem Al Idrisi in his world atlas 1154 ad, were mentioning Finnish Kings gives a good reason to reconsider Nordic history by using detailed descriptions of Fornjotr-family. Maybe the Fornjotr-King-family is not a mythological introduction of the Nordic pre-history; it could be a real history from 400-700 ad. It is no wonder that some sagas sound, in some extent, mythological because it was passed orally for generations, over 600 years. Of course, some inaccuracies must have occurred but it does not justify abandoning Fornjotr-saga or trough into a well of mythology as most of the historians and saga researchers had done. Why Vikings would mention Finnish and Kvenish Kings in the first place if they would not have existed in a way or another, and why it was placed in Finland and Kvenland in the first place.

Mahtava blogi! Itsekkin olen Suomen rautakautisen historian ja Fornjotr -saagan tutkijoita.

Mutta itselleni heräsi kysymyksiä tästä tekstistä.

Tuossa viimeisessä artikkelissa jossa luettelit Kveenien-suvun jälkeläisiä heräs sellanen huomio että noilla kaikilla on melko "Pohjois-Germaaniset" nimet kuten esim. King Kari Fornjotsson tai Jokull Frostasson.

Olivatko nämä kuitenkin samat nimet joilla suomenkieliset nimittivät heitä?

Any info on Fornjotor would be appreciated. That is where we start our family tree, but is there anything before that...
